How to Stiff It From 100 Yards In
You have a good lie in the fairway roughly 70 yards from the green, but you can't make a full swing and that never seems to work out well for you.
Before your next round, hit practice balls using a full swing with your pitching wedge. Picture a clock's face tilted on the same plane as your swing (your chest at the center). Swing your hands to 10:00 in your backswing and 12:00 in your finish. Determine the distance on clean hits with your 10-to-12 swing. With this swing as your base, switch clubs and swing lengths to match the distance at hand.
DIAL IT IN: Consult the table to generate every distance from 110 to 20 yards. If you hit your PW farther or shorter than the 110-yard example outlined here, visit golf.com/dcs and download the table that matches the distance you typically get with a full PW.
If your full pitching wedge flies 110 yards and you need to hit the ball 80 yards... Swing your gap wedge from 9:00 to 2:00.
If your full pitching wedge flies 110 yards and you need to hit the ball 60 yards... Swing your sand wedge from 10:00 to 12:00.
